Halloween House of Horrors

Halloween 2017

Halloween House of Horrors at Ardgillan

It’s that time of year again when the veil between the worlds is thin. Ardgillan Castle’s ghosts have stirred and are ready to wreak mayhem and havoc.

For Halloween the castle is covered in darkness. Not for the faint-hearted this tour will be scarier than ever!!!



Please note that this Halloween we are creating a different style of event. There will not be a performance where you follow a guide through the castle telling a story. Visitors will venture through our house of horrors on their own, entering each space and room in groups of no more than ten people. This will be scarier than ever so please brace yourself…..

Tours available from Friday 27th October – Wednesday 1st November. 

€5 per person.

Not suitable for children under 6. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Beware this tour is very scary and adult supervision is necessary.
